    7.62 x 39 for the SKS

    Hollow Point or FMJ?

    Please give me the reason for each. Im gonna be shooting it for fun but it is my SHTF gun I suppose.

    I can get either but I can only afford to buy one case of 1k right now.

    I would go with FMJ now.

    Mainly because you might have feeding problems with HP. This is unlikely but it is possible. It would sux if you had 1,000 rds that would not feed for your rifle.

    You can buy a small amount of HP and if the feed fine then buy in bulk.

    Thanks for the reply. You have confirmed what I thought. Im ordering 1000 rounds of FMJ today (as soon as I finish typing this)

    I figured the HP could wait. I know the thing will eat the FMJ.

    I'd probably go with the FMJ too though I've used a lot of the Russian hollow-point ammunition in my SKS with nary a bobble.
